Shots To Go

My brother spotted these alcoholic shots being sold at Stop & Shop in Adonis. There’s the Texas Ranger shot which contains Butterscotch Schnapps and Vanilla Cream Liqueur, and the Money shot which contains Amaretto almond liqueur and Irish cream. He didn’t pay attention to the price but if they’re not expensive, it’s a practical idea to have them at house parties.

I was wondering if there’s any arabic sweet called Ma2loubé to use for that picture and Kasr el Helou answered that Knefe is also called Ma2loubé so there you go :D

Speaking of Knefe, I was at Kasr el Helou in Tripoli on Saturday and had one. One of the best in Lebanon!

PS: I made sure no one was hurt in that accident before posting about it.

Coincidence? Education Minister Elias Bou Saab Also Graduated With A Passing Statement In 1987

Posted By :

lol

It seems our Education Minister knows all about passing statements, as he got one himself in 1987 during the war. Speaking of passing statements, here’s a video that went viral and pokes fun of students who never studied and passed anyway. I personally know someone who just showed up to the exams and just wrote down his name and left.

In all cases, I am with the Education Minister on this decision, even though I don’t like it, as the teachers on strike should not have bargained with the students’ future.

The SerLea: A Double Barrel 9mm Submachine Gun of Lebanese Origin

Posted By :

SerLea

The SerLea is a machine gun that was apparently designed by a Lebanese gunsmith and veteran of Beirut street battles. The weapon has twin barrels, twin magazines and twin open bolts. There’s a synchronizing device to turn the weapon into a single high rate of fire, allowing each barrel to be fired one after the other, producing a rate of fire around 1,000 rounds per minute. The Los Angeles Police Department showed interest in the SerLea machine gun back in the 1990s but only few units were produced.

I’ve never seen nor heard about this gun until now.

Thanks Michel!

CONFIRMED: Passing Statements Issued To All Grade 9 and 12 Lebanese Students

This is definitely not the best way out of this crisis between the Syndicate Coordination Committee and the Education Ministry, but the students’ future is a priority as they need the results to enroll in universities either inside Lebanon or outside the country. Personally speaking, I am still against the wage increase requested by the SCC and I really think they should reconsider their demands. While some of them truly deserve a raise, there are plenty of others that are abusing the system.
